I am crazy about Parisian wallpaper brand Bien Fait‘s debut collection, voilà!
Founder Cécile Figuette (ex-Minakani Lab) has imagined a wallpaper dream world with subtle mixes of colourful geometry, mysterious panoramic visions and reminiscences of childhood memories. To orchestrate the collection presentation, Cécile entrusted French-Japanese design duet A+A Cooren with designing the brand’s newly-launched showroom – a multi-purpose space encompassing a meeting area, a work studio and a creative workshop – ideally located in a cobbled courtyard on rue Saint Paul, Paris 4th arrondissement.
The work of Aki and Arnaud Cooren was to focus on how to articulate the full-scale wallpapers in a confined space whilst taking advantage of every wall in order to achieve the strongest statement. Knowing and loving the quality of their works, it was no surprise to see that once again, the designers had done a beautiful job.
Anyhow, if you’re looking for some incredible wallpapers (especially for children’s rooms), I would warmly recommend Bien Fait. And, good news for all of us who don’t live in Paris, they ship worldwide.
On arrival in front of the entirely papered shop window, the tone is set – full immersion and panoramic vision. Inside, surfaces are soft and clean. Ash wood and concrete have been chosen for the bespoke furnishings, and their quiet neutrality enhance the colourful walls.
